Volunteer Opportunities


Each year, Schoolhouse Supplies relies on the support of approximately 1,000 community volunteers to support our mission and program efforts. Our volunteers know that their efforts make an immediate and tangible impact on Portland’s classrooms.

Ways to Get Involved

One of the best way to volunteer with us (especially if you’re just interested in a one-time, or voucher-earning experience) is to join us at one of our new School Supply Spectacular: Open Community Volunteer Events. These events are held on the third Saturday of every month from 1:30-4:30pm and volunteers do not need to attend an orientation to join us. You must RSVP to attend.

Ongoing volunteer opportunities:

  • Group volunteerism
  • Free Store/Warehouse Assistant
  • Front Desk Greeter at the Free Store for Teachers
  • Data Entry
  • School supply Pick Up Partner (PUP)
  • Book Aisle Assistant
  • Be our lovable mascot Pencil Pete
  • Committee work, special events and internships
